Hi. I'm considering buying a new laptop for college. I've been using an HP PAVILION DV5-1119ES, which has a p8400 processor and I'm very happy with it. But the laptop's too heavy to carry around every day. I'd like to change it for something between 11 and 13 inches but still maintain a good processing power (the same as before if possible). I don't care about gaming performance but I'd enjoy being able to play HD video. the main issue however is having a fast and responsive processor.
